The feelings and fantasies shared by Americans during Ronald Reagan's presidency. Beginning with a psychobiography of Reagan, the book provides a month by month analysis of media imagery showing paranoid fears of a nation about to collapse, in contrast to the actual strong economic and military position of America. The resulting recession, the trillions of dollars spent in military buildup and the various foreign policy crises are demonstrated to be motivated by unconscious political psychodynamics and group-fantasies of most Americans during the Eighties.

"From the very beginning, something seemed to be out of control in Reagan's America. If ever there was a time in history when America should have felt strong and happy, it was at the beginning of the 1980s. However, our recent successes seemed to make us feel just terrible. Never before in history had a nation so strong and wealthy felt so weak and impoverished. Ronald Reagan was elected president in what could only be described as an atmosphere of crisis, with the media everywhere filled with predictions of dangers of collapse."
